Pelts and guns hang from the walls of the dining room at Kreimer’s Bier Haus, lending it a hunting lodge’s rustic charm. As hunting lodges often are, the eatery is a hub for succulent meat dishes such as rib-eye steaks and smoked sausages. However, they place a high premium on veggies as well, and the kitchen serves as a hub for shredded cabbage. Founded in 1982, the German eatery dishes sauerkraut piled on sausages or fried into sauerkraut balls. At white-clothed tables overlooking the Little Miami River, diners can also nosh on seafood such as grilled salmon and jumbo shrimp and sip an eclectic array of beer, wine, and cocktails. During the summer, tables on an expansive riverside patio allow diners to feel the wind in their hair or persuade rain clouds to refill their water glasses.
With more than 25 sandwiches on its menu, Monk's Kitchen specializes in variety. While wildly diverse both in name creativity and ingredients?from the Ham Damnation (or Salvation) to a straightforward fried bologna?every sandwich does share one key element: Monk's trademark homemade french and whole-wheat breads, which are made-from-scratch daily. There's plenty more to enjoy at Monk's Kitchen in addition to the sandwiches, from pizzas and breadsticks to salads and calzones. The family-friendly eatery also has an outdoor patio for nice days and games for kids to play after posting sandwiches pics to their food blogs.
According to Mike Gelastopoulos, "people shouldn't have to pay $10 for a burger." Indeed, his burgers fall well below that price?they're $6.49 on average?and they still earn their gourmet title. The Rockefeller, for instance, is layered with cranberry chutney, blue-cheese crumbles, and beer-battered onion strings, whereas the Pride of Zeus is heaped with gyro meat, feta, and tzatziki sauce. Every burger is also made fresh from 100% Black Angus beef, seeing as Mike doesn't truck with freezers or patties encased in carbonite.?
But it's not just the burgers that have folks talking. When Mad Mike's was immortalized in Cincinnati.com's Burger Hall of Fame, food critic Polly Campbell wrote that "the fries are like nothing you've ever had [at] a fast-food joint." Hand-cut daily, these taters can be ordered plain, topped with cheesy bacon, or with nacho cheese and grilled onions.
